Antiblocking system of brakes (ABS)

Action principle

System ABS raises active safety of the car, preventing blocking of wheels at braking. After all blocking of wheels is exclusively dangerous, as forward wheels become uncontrollable, and going юзом back wheels can lead to drift of the car and emission on other party of movement.

System ABS allows in any concrete conditions (at movement on a straight line, on turn, on the asphalted ice-covered or sea road, etc.) to reduce a brake way to a minimum. Basically at each braking ABS should solve two problems, providing траекторную stability, reliable controllability and manoeuvrability of the car at movement on the roads different as a covering (asphalted, concrete) and being in a different condition (ice-covered, covered with a dirt, snow, water).

Features of driving with ABS

The system automatically joins only on reaching speed about 10 km/h. At its falling below 6 km/h ABS it is disconnected, so theoretically at the latest stage of braking of a wheel can be blocked, however in practice it is basic value any more has no.

Advantages ABS are most accurately shown in situations when you should put the maximum effort to a brake pedal. As forward wheels of the car remain operated, you can easy go round an obstacle.

ABS realises regulation process for fractions of a second. The pedal pulsation under a foot means that braking occurs under control ABS, otherwise, that the driver goes in a boundary mode. Besides, the crackling caused by process of work ABS, reminds the driver of necessity of reduction of speed for conformity with the actual traffic conditions which have changed because of reduction (for example, in connection with ice) friction factor (or couplings) between tyres and road.

On roads with a loose coating (for example, rubble or snow) over the basis with good coupling properties the brake way can appear more long, than at blocking of wheels. Told concerns and movement with chains противоскольжения. Much more important, however, a prize in траекторной stability and controllability of the car.

The important information for your safety

ABS does not cancel action of laws of physics. The system cannot prevent a consequence of the braking executed at an insufficient distance to ahead going car, passage of turns with is inadmissible in the high speed or in the presence of danger of hydroplaning. These consequences still remain on conscience of the driver. Presence ABS, safety providing the raised potential, should not provoke you to unduly risky manner of driving.

Movement on diverse tyres, for example, after installation of a spare wheel (in a combination to three other wheels on which tyres with winter drawing of a protector are mounted) can limit functionality ABS. Therefore the removed wheel needs to be established as soon as possible back.

Do not bring in system any changes.

Works on system should be carried out only by forces of experts.

Antiblocking system of brakes (ABS) / the Monitoring system behind braking on turns (СВС)

System SVS is improved version ABS. In the conditions of braking on turns at high cross-section acceleration, and also at braking during evolution from a number abreast the system allows to improve stability of movement and controllability.

In case of malfunction

Malfunction signal is inclusion of alarm lamp ABS. In this case the brake system continues to work as usual order, as well as on cars without ABS. Address to Section Diagnostics of malfunctions.

If the lamp lights up together with control lamps of systems ABS and ASC+T/DSC * it testifies to failure of all complex of adjusting systems ABS, СВС and ASC+T/DSC. It is possible to continue movement with observance of necessary safety measures as the car can lose stability and to leave from under your control.
